I would even throw Archer out there. Not strictly sci fi, but there are some light sci fi elements now and then. It's also just a straight up awesome show.

Archer is the opposite of science fiction.

It seems like modern day, but also they keep using tech that is systemic to the 1970s and 1980s. Well not the real seventies and eighties... If old Bond films were real.

And yet then they also sometimes use technology that seems futuristic even for us. There's been a running cyborg subplot for 2-3 seasons now. It's kind of a running joke on the show that there's no real way to know when it actually takes place.

Good comedy is of course subjective. What one person finds fun ny another might not.

Re: any good scifi comedy?

"A Boy and His Dog" is arguably a black comedy . . ..

And, of course, there's always "Time Bandits." Not to mention the "Bill and Ted" movies.

(We start listing time-travel comedies we'll be here all day!)
